Directions and Parking

The UMUC office is located in the SHAPE Education Center, Building 212, Room 119.

To find our location driving from Germany, please take Autobahn 62 toward Trier. Watch for the road signs for Luxembourg and follow them. This will put you onto the German Federal Highway 51 toward Bitburg. Highway 51 becomes the A48 toward Luxembourg. As you near Luxembourg City merge onto the A-4/E411 toward Brussels. About halfway to Namur, the E25 Autobahn will split off into the A-4/E411 in the direction of Bastogne and Liege. Remain straight on the E411 Namur/Brussels until you come to the junction of the E411 with the E42. Exit onto the E42 west toward Charleroi/Mons/Paris. Remain on the E42 until you come to the SHAPE exit. Be careful at the end of the exit ramp and look completely to the left before turning. Continue straight on the road through the small village of Maisieres and up a hill. At the top of the hill you will see a fence on the left and then a gate -- that is the SHAPE base. Upon entering the front gate and passing through the inspection point, make the first left turn and remain driving straight on. At the end of this road, turn left. The building on the right side, Bldg 212, is the SHAPE Education Center. Parking is available in front of the building.
